Pinecone Candle Holder

I wasn't going to craft today but after my daughter brought home some pinecones from the park, I had to make something with it! lol! Another decor for my soon to be Fall display!

 Material
pinecones, spray paint, the bottom of a soda can, glue gun and scissors

 Spray paint the pine cones

After it dries, cut the top of the pine cone and spray paint again. 
Cut the button of a soda can and trim around it.

 Glue the aluminium circle to the pine cone.

You are done!

  2. I love this idea! I'm slightly obssessed, ok, greatly obssessed with pine cones. I have them sitting all over my house - on my mantels in baskets, as lamp finiels, etc. I will def be making some of these! Thanks for sharing!
